In response to a confession. They believe it's their heritage. They're proud to fly it and truly don't believe that the civil war was about slavery. They laugh about their ancestors owning slaves. My bil is one of those people. My husband just shakes his head about it but I'm so happy we don't live close to him.

I am curious why anyone would want a Confederate flag.

In response to a confession. All right... I'm officially convinced we're being trolled.

In response to a confession. No shit. You’re completely missing the point which is not judging individuals based on things we are presented with in the media and the general opinions aimed toward certain groups of people. Denying that these are the portrayals we are presented with though news and popular opinion would be absurd. No shit, racists aren’t confined to the south, but read through some previous posts here and tell me the south isn’t “notorious for being racist”. It is not racist for me to point out that the news only shows black people looting stores. Whether that is the case or not, that is what the news shows us. It is up to US to see people beyond that. It WOULD be racist for me to assume that a black person will jump at the chance to loot a store, however I don’t think it’s a big leap to assume that some people here are jumping at the chance to be a jerk to people under the guise of being woke, hence this entire thread aimed at the south.

i'm black and i've spent considerable time in both the northeast and southeast. there's definitely racism in both areas but i prefer the racism of the south. it's more in your face and obvious. people down there tend to own their racism. up north it was more subtle or people were in denial about it. of course i'd rather not deal with it at all but i know that's a pipe dream.

The thing with the south is that the racism is institutionalized. There are racists up north, but they are not enough to support things like having confederate flags as pubic high school symbols, which still happens here. Have them on the football uniforms and everything. You can see confederate flags in the north too, but they're not flying over the state capitol. That's a pretty significant difference.

In response to a confession. Sex offenders are typically men.OK, TRUE Large scale terrorists are typically Muslim. UM,NO People who loot stores during a natural disaster are typically black. WTF Racists are typically southern. None of these behaviors are excusable. We are all presented with info. HATE TO BREAK IT TO YOU BUT RACISTS ARE NOT CONFINED TO THE SOUTH. Seriously- "People who loot stores during a natural disaster are typically black"? GTFO with this shit. Pot, meet kettle
